Currently, most ways of creating new players on S2_4 are hardcoded to use the
"classic" AI type:
* barbarians
* civil war
* aifill
* aitoggle'd human players (I think?)
The only way to create a non-"classic" AI is an explicit "/create".

People testing new AI types might reasonably want to switch all AIs over to
their new one at some point in testing. Obviously they can hack the source,
but it feels like there should be a server command which changes what
default_ai_type_name() returns.

(Perhaps in future one might want fine-grained control e.g. a specific AI type
for barbarians, but that can wait IMO.)
